Not bad but you expect a lot more when you are going there. There are just few rooms with some basic stuff.

I have been here previously and was impressed that there are new displays included that I have not seen before (e.g. the convict ship) and with different actors the experience was still fresh and enjoyable. Highly recommended even if you have been before.

Visiting Nottingham so decided to have a look. Really enjoyed it. History brought to life by actors and models. Great to while away an hour or two. Younger children may find this a tad scary, going into gaol cells etc but very good. Recommend.

The original Court House at the Galleries of Justice is stunningly beautiful. The guides are both interesting and funny. Enjoyed the tour immensely.
